    This answer is correct, but it should also be noted that since this is an old patent from 1909, the claims are not formatted as they are in modern documents (patents have undergone several major revisions, the most profound ones in the 1940's and 1950's). The patent has been scanned with OCR, and was basically interpreted by Google as if it were a contemporary patent, which is why the text version of the claims are missing.
